Hiding emotions at work
In an April 1 Washington Times story, Assistant Professor of Management Mitchell Marks commented on how men and women handle anxiety about work and being laid off. Marks said men are less likely to share feelings, which can deter them from moving past the grief of a lost job. "It facilitates the internal process of adaptation," Marks said. "This means letting go of old assumptions and embracing new ones."
Dwindling ethnic media voices
In a March 27 article in the San Francisco Chronicle, Political Science Lecturer David Lee commented on ethnic newspapers that are feeling the all-too-common crunch from declining readership and sagging advertising revenue. Lee said that the closure of ethnic media outlets deprives immigrant communities of an important voice. "Ethnic newspapers are the lifeline for many immigrant communities," Lee said. "The trend of ethnic papers closing or cutting back editorial content or circulation could have very negative effects on voter or civic participation in those communities."
